After a deal inked with mobile-printing specialist PrinterOn, Hilton Garden Inn introduced printing capabilities from smartphones for business travelers.
Guests forward documents, including attachments, from their smartphones to a property-specific e-mail address, which is tied to a printer in Hilton Garden Inn's business center. The printer, which uses PrinterOn's PrintSpots service, processes the document and prints it when the guest inputs a release code.
The printer ID usually is located on the printer, but travelers also can search a mobile directory to find the ID.
Hilton Garden Inn hopes that by providing remote-mobile printing capabilities to road warriors, it will engender customer loyalty.
The service is compatible with iPhones, Blackberrys and and other mobile devices, PrinterOn says.
